On Saturday afternoon thousands of people gathered in Grand Park downtown for the second year in a row to
celebrate L.A.’s diverse taco scene, hear who won L.A. Taco’s Taco Madness bracket, listen to music, stuff their faces with delicious delicious tacos. The day was beautiful and many tacos were consumed, but only some made a real impression. Here are 5 things I came away with after a few hours of sampling everything LA Taco’s Taco Madness 2014 had to offer.
1. Mariscos Jalisco has still go it. At this point there should just be a taco hall of fame, right? Is Mariscos Jalisco’s shrimp dorado taco any worse now than it was when it won Taco Madness in 2012? Of course not. People are just sick of sounding like a broken mariachi record. Can we retire these guys and move on, rather than force them to compete year after year only to have people say “Well, it is my favorite taco of all time but shouldn’t we give somebody else a chance?”
Carnitas, Coraloense and corn, after the jump…
